Though many Girls fans heard wedding bells for Marnie (Allison Williams) and Charlie (Christopher Abbott) during the season 2 finale, that won't be the case in season 3. HBO confirmed (via The New York Times) that Abbott will not be returning to the Golden Globe-winning show. The New York Post is claiming this was an abrupt exit as the actor has been "butting heads" with the show's star and creator Lena Dunham.

Abbott wouldn't be the first actor to leave a wildly popular TV series. From Charlie Sheen to Katherine Heigl, check out five other actors who've left their hit shows when they were just getting good.
